The aid of antique village heads is requested in the rollout of ‘Resbakuna Kids.’
Antique SAN JOSE DE BUENAVISTA As the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) vaccine for children aged 5 to 11 years old (Resbakuna Kids) begins in their respective municipalities, village leaders (barangay captains) in Antique are being invited to help.
Pamela Socorro Azucena, president of the Liga ng mga Barangays (LNB), said in an interview on Thursday that she is pushing the province’s 590 barangay captains to undertake home visits among their people to spread the news about the children’s program.
“The barangay leaders should make it a point to discuss the benefits of the Covid-19 immunization for their children with their constituents,” she said.
Azucena stated that it is impossible to rule out the possibility that some parents are still unwilling to have their children vaccinated or are uninformed of the current pediatric immunization program.
In her hamlet, Barangay Idio, in the municipality of Sebaste, she said there are 244 children aged 5 to 11 who are eligible for Covid-19 vaccination.
On February 21, these young vaccinees are slated to start the program in their municipality.
Meanwhile, Antique Integrated Provincial Health Office (IPHO) Nurse 4 Sheree Vego reported that five towns began pediatric vaccinations on Feb. 16 following the provincial initial rollout the day before at the Binirayan Gymnasium in San Jose de Buenavista.
“As of Thursday, 360 children have had their Covid-19 immunization,” she stated.
Antique, which is made up of 18 municipalities, has a vaccination target of 95,437 children aged 5 to 11.
